So I actually paid to see the Karate Kid remake this past week (no comment), I was surprised and entertained by the preview for the upcoming film Flipped. The film is about two eighth graders who start to have feelings for each other despite being total opposites. After viewing the trailer to the film adaption of the popular young adult novel, I couldn’t help but notice the voice of the narrator, Fil-Am actor Dante Basco. Basco has been busy these past few years providing voice over work for cartoons like Avatar: The Last Airbender. I find it funny that Asian American actors can work in the industry by providing their voice, but are deemed unfit to play the role when it comes to a live action feature films focused on Asian culture.
